But can current events be the beginning of a modern-day Shot Heard Around the World? (Or at least The Shot Heard Around America?)
Power has never respected it's victims - power only respects power. The Third Estate will always be the victim - until it realizes that it doesn't have to be. Modern-day Metics (Not slaves. I've never heard of slaves applying for work on plantations - most of y'all asked to be where you are.) in America (minorities) will always be second-class citizens until they realize that they don't have to be and take on the added responsibilities that go along with being a free citizens.
Black lives will never matter.
(Until Blacks prove that they do.)
